I am a reading teacher at a school that has a 90%+ poverty rate. I have been teaching at this school for thirteen years and I absolutely love my students and their families. I work with small groups of students, Kindergarten-6th grade. Many of these students are very wiggly and active students with amazing and unique personalities and strengths. I try to encourage my students daily and be part of the reason they smile and want to come to school.
The students that I work with are very active Kindergarten-6th grade students. Their safety is one of my top priorities. However, I also want and need them to learn effectively.
One way that they will be able to do that is being able to wobble and move around on their chair while also being able to learn.
Currently, when they attempt to rock on their chairs, it creates an unsafe environment for them. It also takes away from the focus of the lesson to the safety of the chair.
With these requested Active Learning wobble chairs and Waliki Chair Balls, they will be able to wobble/fidget safely, all while still being able to concentrate on their lesson!
